Naturally Dyed Cropped Blouse - Sea Dawn

$79.90

Close your eyes and imagine this scene:
you are standing on the shore. Your feet are bathed in the pleasantly chilly waters of the sea and a bright globe of light is lazily appearing on the horizon, still veiled by a light duvet of mist. As the curtains of a new day are rising, you are looking attentively at the rhythmic and hypnotic undulations that smoothly ripple your temporary, salty refuge.


So relaxing, isn't it?
Our weavers have been inspired by the rejuvenating and welcoming side of nature to create these precious cropped blouses, displaying the warm and cold colors of a silent sea dawn.


But intense colors are not their only valuable feature: being made with the ancient Mayan jaspe weaving technique, each blouse is adorned by refined and intricate patterns belonging to our weavers' cultural heritage. From diamond-like shapes to zigzag lines, each composition hides a very special meaning...
Plus, they are extremely comfy to wear and breathable, which makes them perfect for your warm days of spring and summer.


Check these unique crafts out and let them embrace you in a smooth and calming hug!
